Easy Homemade Bread

I love making homemade bread. Mmmm, warm and soft, fresh from the oven ... just try not to eat the whole loaf. No, seriously. I don't know what it is about homemade bread, but the guilt factor goes away. I will eat the Whole Thing. Because it's just that good. Oooops, didn't get to share with the family. Oh well, I guess I'll have to make another loaf tomorrow!

Join the yum factor! When making your own bread you have full control. So take it. If you want a sweet bread, add sugar to the mix. If you want seeds and nuts, get to it! This particular posting is about good ol' yeasty gluteny dough. So if you have any intolerances, folks, we'll have to wait for the next round to address those. Until then, get out your favorite apron and let's get baking!

Easy Homemade Bread Recipe

Supplies: A large bowl, a liquid measuring jar, a small 1/2 cup measuring cup, measuring spoons, a whisk or fork.

3 plus cups of Flour (your choice, but make sure at least half of it is some sort of wheat or else it won't rise as well)
1 tsp yeast
1 tbsp honey or sugar
1 cup hot water (hot to your touch but not so hot that it burns you)
Butter
Any seeds or herbs or spices you want.



Place 1 tsp of yeast in your bowl, cover it with your 1 tbsp honey or sugar and then cover that with your 1 cup of hot water. Whisk it well and leave it to sit for about 10 minutes or until it forms a "head", which is just a sort of bubbly mass on the surface.
